Deloitte CFO of the Year Award

The chief financial officer is often an unrecognized individual who is key to the success of companies today. In that light, the Deloitte CFO of the Year award will serve to honor an individual for outstanding performance in his or her role as corporate financial steward. 

Nominees will be judged on the following criteria:
Significant achievement and success within their profession and company.
Personal and professional reputation showing high ethical standards.

Nominations are always open. The award will be presented at the Economic Forecast event held annually in January.
